For 2018 we retain a full festival roster of Beverley Folk Festival, Burton Agnes Jazz and Blues Festival, Normafest and Musicport. We also handle shows on the JBGB Events calendar at iconic London venues.
Our Folk, Americana, Jazz and Blues output remains as strong as ever as we look after Radio 2 breakthrough act Elles Bailey. We are proud to represent Radio 2 broadcaster Clare Teal for her various releases and shows in 2017. From Kentucky, Sam Gleaves promises a huge 2018, with Mike Harding describing his album as “The most beautiful album I have heard in the last ten years”. Irish Folk and Roots act Declan O'Rourke secured BBC Radio 2 play through us in 2018 ahead of his UK tour dates and we were honoured to work with fellow Irishmen The High Kings on their new album. 2017 saw us secure numerous BBC radio appearances including daytime Radio 2 for Benjamin W Pike and we also work alongside the blossoming talent on Nick Byrne for a second year. A busy 2018 is on the horizon too for the sublime voice belonging to Irishman Graham J.
Songwriters play a big part in our PR plans again with our involvement in the BBC radio documentary featuring Ian Prowse. Philip Rambow returns with a brand new EP and Scottish songstress Rosie Nimmo continues her upward rise through radio land. Urban songwriters are back on the roster next year too following Tony Humphries BBC 1Xtra daytime play.
We also represent the production impresario Mike Bennett and not forgetting our indie and rock beginnings, we once more handle some sublime indie acts including London acts The Filthy Tongues, Lover and Morrissey and Marshall. The legendary The Wonder Stuff return to promote their 2018 tour. New artists we will be working with include The Jet Reds, Dol Vita, Dead Ground, The Jjohns and Miriam Cooke.
Labels we work with include A1M Records, Big Bed Records, Evil Genius, Northern Quarter, Celtic Collections, Neon Tetra and many more.
We also have a booking agency side now dealing in acoustic acts only which is proving a success and has grown to a five act roster. In 2018 we also represent the women’s elite cycling team Boompods EDCO Velo8.
